    Confronted with an unprecedented string of tornadoes, floods and wildfires, the American Red Cross and other relief groups are scrambling to raise money fast enough to meet the demand for help.

    The organization has spent $41 million thus far responding to the seven-week onslaught while raising $33.6 million to cover the costs.

    The Red Cross has launched 29 separate relief operations in 22 states, responding to wildfires in Texas, flooding along swollen rivers, and the rash of tornadoes that have killed more than 500 people. More than 9,200 Red Cross disaster-responders have been deployed; they’ve served more than 2.1 million meals and snacks, and opened more than 200 shelters.
